Pixel 8 ‘Audio Magic Eraser’ Feature Shows Up in Leaked Video

A leaked promo video for Google’s upcoming Pixel 8 was shared on the platform formerly known as Twitter late Friday that seemingly reveals a new “Audio Magic Eraser” feature.

The 14-second video clip shows a woman skateboarding down the street, and then the video of her skateboarding on an Android phone with an “Audio Magic Eraser” button below. Pressing the button seems to identify the sound of the wheels on the pavement, and produces a slider where you can turn that volume down and to prioritize voices—or in this case, the woman saying “Woohoo!” After the edit, we see the video again, now with significantly less wheel noise.

The clip ends with the statement “The only phone with Audio Magic Erase” and then “The only phone engineered by Google.”

The video also features a phone in light blue, a color similar to the Sea color offered in current versions of the device.

We don’t know much about the Pixel 8, but early leaks and rumors have the device starting at 128GB for base models, similar to the previous version. The phone is also expected to have a slightly smaller battery, new cameras, and a smaller, brighter display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

If Google sticks with its usual release schedule, the device will likely be released in October.
